Perricone MD Concentrated Restorative Treatment Review
What is it? It is an anti-aging night cream that promises to help resurface skin texture and minimize discoloration for a more radiant, healthy skin.
Price: $100 for 2 oz.
Pros: The active ingredient in this treatment is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a very stable, oil soluble form of Vitamin C. Its advantages include easy penetration into the skin, minimal irritation and stinging, help skin make its own moisturizer, and remain stable to air and water for up to 18 months. The best part is, it is the second ingredients on the list. I contacted their customer service but was not able to get the exact percentage of concentration due to proprietary data but was assure that it is highly effective. Another favorite ingredient that is high on the list is glycolic acid, hence the recommendation for night time usage.
At first, I was not sure how I feel about this product because I did not notice a change in my skin. It was not until around the 4th weeks that I started to see improvement. I am side sleeper, predominately on my left side, I know it is bad but I can’t help it. Anyway, my left cheek is not as firm and has tiny, tiny creases. I feel like the Concentrated Restorative Treatment firm up that area and help my skin more even tone. I normally get redness but I have not experience any redness or blemish for the past 2 months, skin seem to be smoother as well.
Cons: I don’t like the jar packaging.
Overall: I will admit that at first, I was put off by the price and would have never bought it if I did not get a good deal (coupon). I have been using this for a little over 2 months and have only used up a almost half a jar. You really don’t need much and I think a jar can last anywhere around 5 months. This and the fact that it simply works justify the high price tag.
